The department of personnel and training (DoPT) has asked all central government ministries and their public sector undertakings (PSUs) to dispense with the requirement of interviews for selections at junior level posts. This means Prime Minister has kept his promise he made on Independence Day. The decision has to be celebrated for it does away with the discretionary powers vested in interviewee. In cricket, this is an equivalent of a quick single. To its credit, Modi government has several such quickies to its credit. India, however, wants big hits from Modi. But are big hits not meant for slog overs? Also, the big hits materialize best only when there is a solid foundation through some good sustained running across the wickets. Modi government must decode positive impact of its decisions relevant to vast population. Meanwhile, it is time to celebrate singles while India awaits some big hits.
